obusco4lyfe: with wat i've learnt on this thread, they usually reject those who aren't fresh frm high sch i.e those who hv a diploma already. As 4 me, i don't!

Hello guys, if there is no change to be made on the DS 160 after a previous denial, can one just retrieve the old application,get a new ID for it and re-submit it like that?

Julie55:
Chei! Dem no dey issue payslips for the place I dey work ooo!

Don't be afraid sis. Your Id card should suffice but you can print your bank statement if possible. When is your interview?

Try find a link between Dentistry and Public Health.

Don't worry about the issue of your B1 visa. Just brace up for the interview.And you need to express ties to your country in every question being asked of you...just link them to Nigeria.

Maybe you should PM me for some of your practical questions cos me no know how to explain in details here o... But yes you can retrieve your former application and then fill the ones that are not automatically retrieved. Then you can submit it. You will then have a new confirmation code.You will then update it on your visa appointment profile and a new appointment confirmation will be generated for you.

Feel free to ask any question on your doubts here.

Cheers. cheesy

@julie55
A change of job wouldn't affect your application and i want to believe that a B1 should be considered different from f1 but only God knows how this VO's operate. My honest opinion, work on your ties to Nigeria, if your parents have properties go along with their documents,since you work presently see if you can get a study leave letter from your coy. When asked any question about your course always relate it to Nigeria.

@mystiqme congrats bruv i wonder why they delayed you initially.

Mystiqme: So I have been on this thread since 2010 and I have been following up throughout my GRE and TOEFL process, through my application process and through my spring rejects but I finally had my interview last Friday and this is how it went down.
It was pretty short (about 3 mins) as I told God I wanted the previous day and out of my over 20 documents, only 2 were requested by the VO.
I was at the Lagos embassy and about 4 VOs were interviewing:the African-American on Counter 1,one white guy on 2,one elderly guy on 3, and one other guy on the last counter.
The guy on C2 refused all the women that came for visiting(Did he think they were pregnant undecided). Anyway my token number was 174 and when i saw 173 on C2, I don dey fear but I don dey prepare my mind for a difficult interview even though I was sure I would make it.Suddenly C1 flashed 174 and I walked up to him on jelly legs. It seemed I had forgotten everything I had rehearsed. Anyway....
The Interview
Me: Good morning
VO: Pass your documents, please.
Me: I passed them. He scrutinized them and at the same time was looking at my face. Maybe he dey look this small boi wey dey go do PhD.
VO: Did you take the GRE?
Me: Yes I took it (I passed him my scores).
VO: Do you have your transcript?
Me: Yes, I do. I pass am.
VO: Looked at my transcript and asked 'What is ecology?' I guess this question came up because I studied Botany and I am going for a PhD in Ecology.
Me: I don already dey blow answer afterall na my turf na, but he stopped me and asked:
VO: What is the difference between Botany and Ecology?
Me: Botany is basically the study of plants while Ecology is the study of plants in their environment..both biotic and abiotic. Short like that, I no sabi talk too much wink
VO: So what will this degree do for you?
Me: Well, I already work here as a ...... so it will enable me get promoted more rapidly in my place of work.
As I was answering the last question He was already tearing the green ticket.
VO: Alright, I am granting you your Visa, go and collect it on Wednesday at Ikeja.
Me: In a small voice..thank you. I was trying to hide a smile but I was not successful. grin
All the best guys, I will try to be available to answer any questions. Cheers!

You guys should stop opening threads like this. You're encouraging people to run away from Nigeria. Why can't they attend OSU or UNAD?

dr_dolittle: Bros relax...You can't do that here in Naija cos Nigerian banks dont issue such.Just ask someone you know in the US to help you issue a cheque to them with the details properly inputted on the cheque just as the school instructed.If you do online banking, transfer the equivalent amount of the expenses which the person you are sending has accrued...but you can do this after the person has helped you send the cheque o.
Fin bank does it.

Julie55: Hello house,
I was denied F1 visa last month.
The interview was so short,the VO was typing MOST of the time. He rarely looked at me.
I was asked just 4 questions-
1)Why Public Health?
Me- I have a passion to serve people, and improve the quality of health for those around me, rising need for public health specialists in Nigeria, etc
2)Who is sponsoring you?
Me- My Dad
3)What does he do?
Me- An engineer
4)What work do you do?
Me- A dentist
I answered fully. No documents were asked. After a long period of typing, he just said, Sorry....and that was all.
I was denied last year also. Same course, though a different school. So this year, I applied to a less expensive, but equally good school.
I have re-applied and will be going soon.
A few questions-
--Im trying to fill a new DS 160, but there is really nothing to change. I filled to first one as carefully, and truthfully as I could.I do not know how else that form could be filled.
--Do I need to snap a fresh passport? I still have copies of the passport I submitted last month.
--How about wearing a good sweater this time around. I felt too cold the other time.
--The 'remarks' section on my I20 says 'all funding subject to Consular Verification' Abeg apart from bank statements, what other 'verification' would they need?
--What else can I do, guys?
Hope to hear from you all!

You must not change your school because its big red flag on your last interview try to explain to VO know why you change your school ....you have to change ur red flag.Also do not change from one categories of Visa when you are not successful on first one ......VO use your information to read your mind.
